"A wonderful, unique, amusingly eclectic entire home that has been creatively refurbished in a quiet neighborhood of Livingston - perfectly located for accessibility to both the outdoor adventures in and around Yellowstone, as well as the hip city scene and eateries of Bozeman (approx. 25 min drive). The spacious home affords plenty of privacy, being located on a corner lot. The renovations are done with a thought to quality (solid hardware, etc. ) and all the provided amenities are eco-friendly. The home is extremely clean (even though it's very dog-friendly - we didn't have ours with, but maybe next time!) and there was no sense we were somehow sharing it with an absent permanent resident - i.e. all closets, cabinets, storage, etc. were empty and available to us. Juliann was easily reachable for any questions - she lives close by - but she provides guests with whatever level of privacy they wish. We love this place! (Every amenity one could think of, the quality and creativity of the furnishings, the privacy)

This house is less than a mile to the nearest Yellowstone River boat ramp, golf course and off leash dog park in a humble, family neighborhood on the east end of town. The bungalow is pet friendly There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with 2 twins. 2 full bathrooms. Very private backyard with deck and gas grill. The house is chocked full of warm character with wood floors, some original to the house, original board ceilings in kitchen and main bedroom., wonderful artistic flair in the palette and character. Original art work abundant on walls. We, as owner/operators try to run the house in the most sustainable,green way possible. Do not expect a highly watered groomed lawn. We only water plants and the plants that we have added are native. In dry years the lawn will also be dry. We do not use chemicals on the lawn either.
Livingston Montana, about 50 miles from the north door of Yellowstone National Park. The north door of the park is the only door that is open all year. The state hwy that leads from Livingston to Yellowstone National Park is scenic but a easy drive any time of year through the famous Paradise Valley. Livingston is on I90, 20 some miles from Bozeman, home of Montana State University. Livingston has the population of about 7,000, Bozeman is about 40,000.
Livingston is the most beautiful town in Montana. Stunning view down Main Street business district of the mountain range above. Lots of night spots.Livingston has several independently owned restaurants, several great independently owned breakfast spots, 2 live theaters, 1 first run movie theater and about a dozen art galleries.
I am a working artist. We love Montana and the Livingston culture. We are active hikers, bicyclists and nature enthusiasts.
juliann jones purchased this bungalow in 2006
great place to come to either get away from it all or for outdoor adventures. great for outdoor enthusiasts, nature lovers. works equally well for artists and writers as sanctuary. Big corner lot with next door neighbors only from the backyard. Private back yard completely fenced for dogs or privacy.
very private back yard, pet friendly - less than one mile from nearest Yellowstone River access with river shuttle service available for a fee- less than one mile to golf range and golf course. Livingston is a fabulous little town with wonderful home town village feel. Night spots and breakfast spots are numerous. Plenty of outdoor guide services available for those who want to fly fish or hike and would like help. Also great rafting and floating.
as far as the home itself, it is very clean with wood floors every where, very cute homey atmosphere with a back deck and private back yard. we practice sustainable efforts with bamboo towels, cotton sheets, down comforters,etc. You will not find a highly groomed lawn. What you will find is native plants and if the year is dry then the lawn is too.
Easily five stars, if what you're looking for is for laid-back elegance, comfort, privacy, and easy access to beautiful Montana. There's plenty of room: the kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open and ready for family and friends to gather, laugh, cook, and eat. It's clean and full of light, with beautiful artwork by one of the owners herself. The back yard is private, with a gas grill, table, plenty of chairs, and a lovely view of the stars at night. My bed was cozy and warm. An easy walk takes you to the river and the "Silent Giant," and downtown Livingston is close by (Yellowstone too, though there's lots of beauty to be found all around). I went with some dear friends, but I often travel alone, and it's a great "home" for a solo traveler too. That openness doesn't make it feel empty if you're by yourself, and the privacy - especially out on the back deck - is just what I look for when traveling alone.
P.S. The bathrooms were also great. When I took my first shower back at home, I actually missed the one at the Bungalow! (a first!)

My son and I had a fantastic time in Livingston and the surrounding area while staying at this charming and artistic bungalow. We loved sitting out on the back porch, grilling, talking about our experiences at Yellowstone and planning our next adventure. The living room was cozy and comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We rented bikes at the local bike shop and used them in town to visit all the fun spots in town. Restaurants, bars, and people in Livingston are amazing. Best thing of all - we were treated like family by our host.
House is old, has very squeaky floors, back door doesn't lock, yard was a total mess, the front bedroom is ok for kids not adults, bathrooms were very clean and house was clean. Kitchen well equipped. Comfy living room with enough seating for four.
We had all we needed for a comfortable stay. Enjoyed grilling outside and relaxing inside. Juliann and her husband are AWESOME. Went way out their way to help us out.
My son and I had a great time in Livingston and the surrounding area. White water rafting and Yellowstone were less than an hour away, Wish we could've stayed longer.
We had a great time for a long weekend and the Christmas Stroll. The yard is great for the dogs. The place is cozy and artsy. Plenty of room for 4 adult. The only thing that could be better is having couple style beds in both rooms.
Unique furnishings were fun and comfy. Nice to have a patio on such a nice warm day to bar b q and dine outdoors. Enjoyed the close location to old town and all the great places to eat!
We stayed in this house at the end of July in Livingston, about an hour from the North entrance to Yellowstone. The house was worn but comfortable including good appliances, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a backyard. The utilities worked great including plenty of hot water, good water pressure and super showers. There were thoughtful touches like nightlights throughout so that you could find your way around in the middle of the night. Since we were travelling with 2 dogs, the backyard and proximity to an excellent dog park, were very helpful. The owner is lovely and very obliging.
Yellowstone National Park is 50 miles south of Livingston. The park is a must see any time of year. The absolute best months to go are not June, July and August because the park is crowded. The off months are fabulous. Livingston is situated 50 miles from the only door of Yellowstone that is open all year. Winter travel in Yellowstone is magical. You ride special snow coaches in to Old Faithful area. Other attractions are of course the Yellowstone River itself which is less than one mile from this cottage. The nearest boat access also. There is an off leash dog park just 3 blocks away. Livingston is surrounded by 3 mountain ranges, Absarokees, the Bridgers and the Crazy Mountain Range. All of these have ample opportunity for hiking, etc. Scenic drives are great too. Livingston is a town of about 7000. If you feel you need a bustling retail center Bozeman is only 25 minutes away, is the home of Montanan State University and is about 40,000 people.
